137

If you’re running a PC, odds are you’re using either Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox as your web browser. The trio are always going head-to-head for marketshare with new features and other innovations.

Which is why the tech community was pretty stoked when Mozilla announced their plans for Firefox as a Windows 8 style app. Unfortunately it looks like the launch of that application has been pushed back.

Asus announces the T100: Windows 8.1 device with 11 hours of battery life just for $349

161

In late 2007 Asus kicked off a new segment of personal computers called netbooks with their Eee PC line. The devices initially ran Linux, but later brought Windows into the mix. They were, for a time, wildly successful. They fit the computing needs of 90% of the population. You could easily browse the web, check email, compose Word documents, and more for a relatively inexpensive product with solid battery life. Other PC manufacturers jump into the craze, but that all about ended when the iPad and other tablets came into prominence. Now Asus is hoping to regain that netbook market with the T100, but don’t call this a netbook.

Dell brings back the Venue, but not how you think

Nearly three years ago when Windows Phone 7 launched one handset stood out amongst them all. The Dell Venue Pro was a device with a keyboard slider, but in portrait orientation. It was truly unique and one of the most interesting Windows Phone devices of all time. Unfortunately, its greatness was marred by buggy Wi-Fi and other issues. Now Dell is reviving the Venue brand, but not how you think.

68

The official launch of Windows 8.1 might not be till the 18th of October, but Microsoft is continually updating their own apps in preparation for the big day. One of those apps that’s been reimagined from the ground up is Xbox Music. When we first played with Xbox Music on Windows 8 last year it completely broke our experience and hearts as to the direction Microsoft was headed. But when we tried out Xbox Music for Windows 8.1 the spark was back. The latest update is minor, but does help round out the experience. Let’s check it out.

Microsoft backs down: Developers can now download Windows 8.1 RTM and Visual Studio 2013 RC

99

If we we’re clinical psychologists (we’re not) we might suggest that Microsoft is suffering from dissociative identity disorder, something also known as multiple personality disorder. The company has been doing 180s on products and announcements more frequently than anyone one company should. Take for example some of the backtracking Microsoft did with the Xbox One and features announced back in May at the unveiling compared to what will now be available on launch on November 22nd

And today, the most recent example – developers can now download Windows 8.1 RTM via TechNet or MSDN.
